Raspberry pi

Postby the croc » Sun Nov 13, 2016 10:02 pm

Does anyone know how to use these?

I have no idea but I'm interested in learning.

I think you can make a ATM card hacker with rolling numbers and pins. Like on Terninator 2 with one of this.

I have used them quite a bit. Arduinos Too. what are you planning on building? I got a pi running with a cheap touch screen and a DAC audio card. Use it as a portable media centre. Call It my D.I.Y-pad.

I'm wondering if you could use one to automatically reset a rat trap after its gone off. Essentially tell a robot arm to pull back on a spring.

wouldnt that make the rat trap a lot more expensive than a goodnature trap?

now thats more like it, if you make something Croc, i need a research project, so would be keen as to field test.

this is an article about one my friend did this year with those A24 goodnatures

That would be a good job for an Arduino nano, about $4 with free shipping on ebay

Thanks J. I'll look into it.

A yup cool, I saw that article when it came out. Sounds like they had a pretty heavy infestation to begin with.

Good natures are great, but as you point out, expensive. We use a few around here but generally stick with the Doc 200s and Victor rat traps.

I doubt I'll make anything soon but I'll keep you in the loop anyway.

i did a bit of thinking about this, and realised theres no need for a computer or an actuator, just a switch, and if you can do it better or cheaper than with gas, then good shit, but im out.

im a huge fan of victor, all my traps are(well any i buy now) but yeh nah a24 for rats, victor is for possums

Just have a bit of a google. The arduino forums are full of stuff. If you've done any programming before it'll come to you pretty quickly. What other bits have you got for your rat trap? I use arduinos and RPIs all the time for work, running industrial stuff. Can probably point you in the right direction.

Thanks man. I just realised it came with a CD-R witha bunch of resources so I'll have a read through that first. I'll come back if I get stuck.

New wireless enabled Pi Zero model now! Looks pretty cool and only $10 USD but extremely hard to get hold of due to limited stock etc. I'm pretty keen to play with one though. Currently using 5 raspberry pi's in a distributed cluster for robotics control for my undergrad thesis.

Here's a good use for any RPIs you have lying around;
https://pi-hole.net/
Sets itself up as a DNS server and then blocks all ad domains at the DNS level. Sounds pretty handy. Setting it up for myself atm

I've been playing around with motors. Been successful so far with step and servo motors. Step learning curve though!
